12 oz. bottle

Pours ruby red with a dense creamy frothy pink foam head. Smells like cherry juice, oak, funky hay, tart cherries, green apple, with earthy herbal hops. Tastes like sweet and tart cherries, green apple, oak, funky hay, with earthy herbal hops. Feels medium bodied, creamy and slick with moderate low carbonation. Overall a really nice kriek.

First Lambic beer I have tried. Very, very sweet tasting with strong cherry taste, in fact, the cherry taste almost dominates the whole beer. Good carbonation and has a sticky (sugary?) feel with a clean finish and no hops taste whatsoever. Almost felt like drinking a carbonated cherry drink-- but it was refreshing indeed. Judging from the feel I'm just not sure if what I drank was a beer or not.

Sweeter than I hoped but a touch sour at least. The cherryness really screams at you. If only it weren't so sweet. Hmm, certainly not one of the best krieks out there.
